    Processes that dissipate oil spills include oxidation and micro- bial degradation. Share through Email Share to Google Classroom Oil clean up experiments are useful for understanding how professional scientists, engineers, and technicians handle large, hazardous spills. The oil slick was comparable in size to naturally occurring oil seeps and was not large enough to pose an immediate threat to wildlife. This study investigates the spreading and disso- lution behavior of small oil slicks on water. The presence of indigenous surface active components in oil water may exert a counter force against the spreading force or 14 of oils.

    Through the use of high resolution gas chromatography and computer analysis, an oil sample can be assigned a unique "fingerprint," or pattern of data, that will distinguish it from other samples. Neely et al. Another possibility is that it is formation oil escaping from the subsurface, using the Macondo well casing as flow conduit, possibly intersecting a naturally occurring fault, and then following that to escape at the surface some distance from the wellhead. Precisely how petroleum and petroleum compounds affect organisms is not clear at this time.

Conversely, Li and Garrett argue that natural dispersion is generated mainly by dynamic pressures associated with larger eddy scales, resulting in the creation of relatively large droplets i.

Presentations at Oil slick dispersal mechanics book and regional conferences for govern- mental and industrial representatives who deal with spill response and control are prepared by the Environmental Monitoring and Support Laboratory in Las Vegas to disseminate information on aerial monitoring applications.

This range of values is in agreement with reported" values of wind-induced surface drift Wu, This broken-down oil can be absorbed by marine life and into the food chain. Several individuals and organizations contributed to the success of this study by donating samples of crude oils and dispersants.

The times of exposure in the laboratory 24 to 96 hr are much longer than predicted exposures during slick dispersal in the open sea 1 to 3 furand the effects would be expected to be correspondingly less in the field.

Experiments will continue, and others will be undertaken, particularly in the field of genetic toxicology, to attempt to define and clarify these mechanisms. Conclusions 4 3. Intentional discharges of bilge and ballast water further aggravate oil pollution. The second reason for changing the solvent in the reformulated dispersant was to extend the window of opportunity for dispersant use.

Dispersal processes include aerosol formation, evaporation, spreading, emulsification, dissolution, solubi1izationsedimentation and mechanical transport by wind, wave, and current forces. The physical, chemical, and mechanical processes that disperse components of crude oils have been identified Pilpel, ; National Academy of Sciences, ; McAuliffe, abut the rates of the indi- vidual processes remain to be quantified.

In the presence of wind, waves reduced the drift to about 2. Until these processes are understood fully speculation will continue on the short- and long-term effects of oil pollution on marine environ- ments.

A spill like this that is close to land causes many problems for the environment and makes it difficult to clean up.

In real life, floating objects, sort of like a big sock, are carried into the ocean and then pushed off the side of a boat to help soak up oil spills.

In addition, the Narragansett lab is conducting research to determine the possible histopathological and Oil slick dispersal mechanics book effects of oil. The mass transfer processes which cause chemically treated slicks to break up into oil droplets and to disperse into the aqueous phase upon agitation, have been identified.

Mathematical models were derived for oils spreading on calm water. Experts have techniques to help minimize the mortality rate among animals that become polluted by oil, but rescuing birds and sea mammals like walruses and otters present challenges. The influence of factors such Oil slick dispersal mechanics book temperature, water quality, environmental factors, etc.

Infor- mation generated by the model includes size and thickness Oil slick dispersal mechanics book oil slick, "oil" properties and composition and the amounts of "oil" evaporated, dissolved and disoersed as a function of time after the spill. A large-scale laboratory system has been designed and was used to evaluate the efficiencies of five commercial dispersants, Parameters investigated include oi 1 -to-di spersant ratios, oil type, degree of agitation, and the effect of salt water.

The seven requirements for a chemical dispersant to enhance the formation of oil droplets NRC, are: The dispersant must hit the target oil at the desired dosage. Another possibility is that it is formation oil escaping from the subsurface, using the Macondo well casing as flow conduit, possibly intersecting a naturally occurring fault, and then following that to escape at the surface some distance from the wellhead.

This new kit is designed to teach students all about oil spills. According to Fay there are four major forces acting on oil during spreading: gravity, viscous, inertia, and surface tension.

Rates of dissolution of crude oils and petroleum products are important because they influence the hydrocarbon burden that aquatic biota must bear. A major ORD program is underway at several labs throughout the country to assess the ecological impacts of petroleum and petroleum products on the environment.

Aside from the problems of working in sub-zero temperatures, natural ocean cleansing actions are slowed and the oil tends to congeal and even solidify.NASA's MISR Provides Unique Views of Gulf Oil Slick.
